Zoning ordinance changes sought

KINGMAN – The planning and zoning commissioners will look at changes to the county’s land division regulations and changing the zoning ordinance.

The first change deals with changing the zoning ordinance to allow permits for schools or churches in commercial or industrial zones where neighboring businesses or establishments sell or allow alcohol. Another issue changes the zoning ordinance in land zoned regional parks. Hualapai Mountain Park and Davis Camp are the only two county parks in the county. Another issue deals with changes to the ordinance and with land division regulations to deal with changes to state law.

The last change is to the land division regulations in the event of an economic downturn affecting planned subdivisions in the county. There are about 50 proposed subdivisions in the county. Planners are asking for more time to develop projects.

In other action, the commission will look at a rezone of a lot north of King Street in Mohave Valley. The applicant wants to subdivide a six-acre lot into 24 residential lots that would be known as the Willow Valley Estates subdivision.

The commission will also look at a change to the county general plan and rezoning property near Kingman for the second phase of a wind turbine power plant. The rezone would be to an energy overlay – wind. Five wind turbines were recently installed several miles southwest of Kingman off Interstate 40. The project will be the second 10-megawatt phase that will add to the existing 10-megawatt wind turbine power plant.

The planning and zoning issues will go before the county supervisors for approval at the Aug. 1 board meeting. The planning and zoning commission meeting starts at 10 a.m. today at the board of supervisor’s auditorium at the county administration building, 700 W. Beale St. in Kingman.
